Zip Line - Day Well Lived

One of the best things about living in Costa Rica has been having visitors from home and having the opportunity to show them around. We ventured for a day trip to Monteverde’s eXtremo Park for their Canopy Tour, and this was truly $50 well spent. Included in the tour were 14 Zip Line cables soaring […]

Monteverde - Day Well Lived
On a regular day-to-day basis, having no car in Costa Rica is no big deal; for us we have our bikes which is perfect for getting us to town whenever we need or want to go. However, a car would be really nice for exploring more of this beautiful country! So whenever we rent a [...]

Walk With Cece - Day Well Lived

We recently made our first “border run” as many expats call it. We’re living in Costa Rica on a tourist Visa, which means we must leave the country every 90 days in order to come back and stay here legally. I put border run in quotes, because really we took a two week vacation back […]

Saturday night, we’re getting ready to walk with Harvey and grab carry out from The Shrimp Hole and we run into the owner of our building. We make small talk for a few minutes and he mentions “by the way, we’ve got a full house coming in tomorrow afternoon, we’re going to need you to […]

Tenorio - Day Well Lived

My husband comes home at 9:30 p.m. on a Friday and says “This guy I played soccer with tonight is going rafting somewhere near Liberia tomorrow and has space for extra people, do you want to go?” I have been craving adventure. Now that we’ve got ourselves decently settled, I’ve had the itch to get out […]

Every Experience Holds a Blessing - Day Well Lived

We started our Tuesday evening walk on the beach with Harvey just like we start our walk every other evening. He says hi to all the other playa pups, and occasionally to the other human beach goers. He jumps a few waves and inevitably marches out onto the rocks in the ocean for an evening […]
